Real Ghost Stories

Showground Road

 

It was about 12 years ago to the best of my memory. I was running my own franchised soft drink run and my regular area was at Thornliegh, Sydney Australia. I have had many premonitions in my life, most of them were only trivial and occurred sometimes day in and day out... Spanned from memory over the last 30 years or so. Although today, they have basically stopped, a lot of these premonitions occurred way back and most of them at this point of time are long forgotten.

There are some premonitions that I will never forget and this one was so profound and accurate, my decision to follow my instincts ended up saving my life, no doubt. It was the night before and in this dream I was driving along Showground Road at Castlehill. Suddenly I could see myself in this traffic accident and I was dead. I remember distinctly how horrible the feeling and sense of death was, it literally chilled me to my spine.

The other thing I remember was the impact, that too was awful. The whole dream was more than just a dream and waking up, I had this feeling in my gut that what was shown to me was for a reason and when you have premonitions on such a regular basis, it doesn't take much to convince you otherwise. Heading to work that next morning, my daily routine was in progress and most of the day went pretty smooth, until the point where I finished my last delivery and time to head home. My journey home from Thornliegh should have taken me through Castlehill and along Showground Road, like on all of my previous travels this way was the best option.

Being in a truck, Showground Road was really the only way home for me, unless I was willing to take a suburban way, at the risk of being fined a 1000 dollars by local laws designed to keep trucks out of these areas. At that time financially with a young family and living week to week taking this risk is not something I would have considered lightly. But thankfully it was a risk I was prepared to take as I had no intention of using showground road.

It took a little extra time to get home, but eventually I made it and felt relieved I was home and safe, I was wondering about the what if factor and at what point do I use that road again? It could have been perhaps half an hour later, as I was still sorting out the goods on my vehicle the news came over the radio. It was peak hour traffic and accidents were often relayed to motorist on a daily basis.

When it was relayed about a fatal accident at showground road castlehill, I knew instantly it was the accident I saw in my dream the previous night... I don't believe premonitions are necessarily accredited to our own abilities, but are given to us for reasons sometimes beyond our understanding, it was not my time.

Cheers mate, just letting you know that in regards to the women in black, cause I do remember you asking to keep you up dated... They have charged two people for the murder of the young girl and I will put a story here at some point that I'm sure you will find interesting... I am just waiting for justice in the court to prevail before I do but it could take some time.

*waves to Darren* how goes it? Fb account is down so not up to date with what's happening

Anyway onto your story. Thank god you listened to your gut instint on that dream. Sounds like if you hadnt there wouldve been dire consequences for yourself. In fact it reminded me of the gut feelings/intution/sixth sense I often get. When I don't listen to them it always seems to spell trouble!

Thank you Darren, for your thoughts and prayers. But so far it's not good news, and that's the plain truth of it. You are right, it takes a lot out of family and friends alike, but nothing compared to the one who's suffering. You have a good night sir. And thank you for listening.

Aussie,
I hear you mate, my older sister Kathy is struggling with it now. I've been wringing my hands night and day over it too. Cervical cancer is her tormentor as we speak. It's hard to sit on the sidelines when you just want to get up and kick that killer down. Prayers and support are so important, and I've got to keep it going for her, but it's times like these that you want to kick something back, you know?

Jav 😢

The women in black story was my most profound experience for a few dark reasons of it's own... And being able to see, hug and talk to my mother has filled my heart with joy and left me with a good memory to move on with... I don't consider myself psychic... More blessed that God could bring us together in a peaceful loving way one more time after she had a cruel tenacious fight with that horrible disease cancer and she did really suffer in a way that's best not to describe...lol

Aussiedaz,
Your 'Woman in Black' story was a pretty dark one too, but still stands out as one of my favorites. I can understand you having trouble putting pen to paper though, knowing it has to do with someone so close to you. I don't know if I could find the strength myself.

Jav ❤

Thanks again Jav, that's a nice thing to say mate and it means a lot to me... I have a story to share about my niece and have struggled to complete it a few times over the last 12 months... I think your last comment may just give me the strength to finish it this time, but let me prepare you, there is no happy ending in the next one lol ❤

Daz - I just figured you play the "what if" game that I play all the time. Not a good game to play, but we do it anyway, don't we? Human nature though. Glad I could help, Daz ❤ Just can't believe it took me that long to see your story.

Daz - you know how I feel about your gifts and, yes, this one is also a gift regardless of how you feel about it. It's an ability that has been given to you that not everyone else has. It just has it's crappy side.

You also know, Daz, that there is nothing you could have done to prevent that accident. Let's say you told everyone you knew that you had had a premonition that you were in an accident and that you died. Even if you had had some kind of pull with the local authority and they had closed the road that day, that man who died was still going to die, Daz. It was his time.

It may not have been in that accident right at that time. Maybe it would have been further down the road and it may have been a worse accident. But it was going to happen. Maybe it would have been the next day and maybe that day it would have involved someone you knew and loved.

It played out the way it was supposed too. You had the premonition. You paid attention to it, just like you were supposed to. But you weren't meant to save that man's life, Daz. It was his time.

Thanks Taz, I appreciate your thoughts on my story, I was lucky that's for sure mate... One thing I do know the accident was not my fault... Otherwise it wouldn't of happened... I sometimes think about the un lucky person who died... To think all that day I knew it was going to happened and kind of did nothing to stop it... Anyway thanks again mate.

Daz.

Darkness, You know mate I don't look at it like a gift... I think its more of a blessing... There has to be someone up there looking over my shoulder mate... I have had a few more than coincidental dreams and even spoken to some of these ministerial spirits who watch over us... My time was no up in this sphere budy and maybe in the next I may know a little more about the reasons behind it... Cheers mate.

Aussie mate how the hell did I miss this! Wow buddy that's incredible, the feeling that you received from realising that an accident did occur must have been overwhelming and I couldn't even imagine the feeling of losing your life and everything you love before it that's horrible champ.
Your accounts always continue to amaze me buddy you have been blessed with a great gift and I do believe that someone has been watching over your whole life consistently with great love! Keep them coming mate! 😁 😁

This was a great story, really worth reading! Thanks for sharing, aussiedaz. I have had only one dream predicting my "future". I will probably write that up on another story. But, my goodness, is it weird to keep having premonitions? I for one would be kind of freaked, but grateful that someone is warning me about the future by showing me premonitions, especially if it saved my life. I loved reading your story. I am glad that you listened to your premonition, and I am glad that you are still alive.
Love & Light, Rachel ❤

Very interesting story! I'm so grateful you had that premonition and that it was enough to keep you from going down that road. Strange indeed, but lucky. I'd never had a dream where I "felt" death until last year. It was weird so I feel like I know what you mean when you describe it. In the dream I was looking out the window of my childhood home at a purple-pink sunset when out of nowhere an atom bomb dropped twenty feet onto the driveway in front of me. The blast was so intense it threw me into the air; I felt my whole body vibrating violently and it sounded like a train was going through my head. I remember feeling close to death and accepting my fate, thinking to myself in that split second, "So this is what it's like." Then I woke up.

Crazy, huh? Glad you're still with us and keep those stories coming! 😳

I'll make you a promise mate, you show up in the states and make it to Las Vegas, and we'll drive up and meet you there! Then maybe zzgranny and I can show you what a REAL Casino is like! I know they've got them all over the world, but listen mate, nothing, and I mean NOTHING, beats Vegas!
No offense to my beloved Reno, but pleeeeease!

Aussie,
No, I don't want to imagine that! Too many bad implications go with that thought. For one, losing the chance of ever having met my best mate. I think I'll stop wondering right there, if you don't mind. Now stop scaring me.
